The ICON ISSUE is printed, bound and shipping. And it’s H-E-Double Hockey Sticks-A Hot. No surprise, there’s a Treadway on the cover. This time it’s Daryl as captured by Bryn Hughes to kick off an issue that our publisher calls,“photographically the strongest issue ever of SKIER.” Time to ask for a raise….
Have you heard about the guy that can do a triple flip 1800 yet? Yeah, well, he’s nuts. And he’s all over the first few pages of DUCT TAPE, where Steve Threndyle explores freestyle aerialists. Check out our feature on Baldface Lodge. As told by Mitchell Scott and shot by Mattias Fredriksson, this article will have you heading for the hills of Nelson, BC, just like all the famous rock stars who frequent the lodge. Money Shots is one of our best ideas ever: ask the best photographers in the world to send in their most profitable shots and give us the story behind them. This article shows what the best of the best can do with a little celluloid. Last year we sent backcountry dirtbag Steve Ogle on his tamest adventure yet: a fully comped resort stay in Jackson Hole. See how he and JD Hare cope with the comfort of it all in High Class in Borrowed Shoes. Finally, Isn’t it Iconic takes you to the North American resorts that have made skiing on this continent what it is today. Whistler, Aspen, Stowe, they’re all in there. And as usual HARVEST is awash with amazing photos from the best photographers in the world. The level of photography in SKIER is higher than ever and HARVEST is a showcase of this.
